With linebacker Zack Follett apparently no longer playing with the Detroit Lions going forward, there is a vacancy on the roster. Nothing has been officially announced just yet, but there are rumors floating around that linebacker Bobby Carpenter could fill the opening. Even before Follett broke the news about being done in Detroit and possibly with football, rumors were swirling about Carpenter, and it looks like he might have already been re-signed.
From a radio host in Columbus:
breaking news the lions sign MY GUY Bobby Carpenter
I will admit that I was skeptical of somebody that goes by "The Torg" having any inside information, but it turns out he and Carpenter have worked together before on 97.1 The Fan in Columbus. This makes me think that the above tweet is legit, especially with the news about Follett coming out. The Lions need another linebacker, and re-signing Carpenter would be a great move considering how well he played at the end of last season.
